Luxury crossovers have been flooding the market for years, and yet not a single one has come from Jaguar until now. The new F-PACE promises to deliver the driving dynamics that brand aficionados expect, along with more utility than any Jaguar has ever offered.
What's New for 2017
The F-PACE is an all-new model.
Choosing Your Jaguar F-PACE
The five-passenger F-PACE ranks between compact and midsize. You get a generous 33.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seat, and a total of 61.4 cubic feet with it folded. The reversible cargo floor panel offers you a choice of carpeting or rubberized material.
The standard turbodiesel 2-liter four-cylinder engine develops 180 horsepower. The available supercharged 3-liter V6 provides a massive boost to 340 or 380 horsepower depending on the trim level. An eight-speed automatic transmission is used with all engines.
Every F-PACE comes with all-wheel drive and Jaguar's All Surface Progress Control system, which modulates throttle and braking for maximum traction during takeoffs.
The F-PACE is offered in four trim levels:
A novel feature available on all models is Activity Key ($400), a waterproof wristband that functions as a key fob, unlocking the door as you approach the vehicle. For security, the regular fob is deactivated while Activity Key is in use.
The F-PACE lineup cover a lot of market territory. The difference between the bottom and top of the line is nearly $30,000. The Prestige may be the sweet spot, offering Jaguar-caliber luxury while staying under $50,000.
